General Community Event
Talk | A talk or slide show presentation.Educational | A trip where the leader will focus on teaching or training.Michael, Brian, Yuri and John would like to invite you to the launch of the new book, The Duck Hole, by Michael Keats and John Fox.The Duck Hole is a section of the Glenbrook Creek that has long been a popular bushwalking and swimming destination. Those who were observant would have noticed some infrastructure on the track down and at the water's edge and may have been curious about what its origins were. The book includes many historic photographs and reads like a detective story. The authors set out to learn more about the historic infrastructure, and a systematic investigation was made. In the process, they refuted local folklore and discovered the real story behind a fascinating period of rail history in the Blue Mountains. View

Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPublic Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.(Updated Details) Berowra to Bobbin Head is section 3 of the 100km Oxfam trail which is along the well-known Great North Walk and the Harbour to Hawkesbury Walking Track in the beautiful bushland of northern Sydney. We start at the Berowra station, walk along the Benowie Track, head up Lyrebird Gully to Mt. Kuring-gai, then descend towards Cowan Creek on the Mt. Kuring-gai Track, continue alongside the water's edge and finish the section at Bobbin Head and then go back to Mt Kuring-gai Station. You would have the option to leave at Bobbin Head, walk along Bobbin Head Road to the Ku-Ring-Gai Creative Arts High School bus stop and take the 577 bus to Turramurra Station. This walk is one of the most pleasant in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, with great views over the water as well as nice views from the ridge at Berowra. We would pass through Apple Tree Bay and stop at the cafe for a cuppa in Bobbin Head before heading off to the Mt Kuring-Gai station. Steep and slippery sections.

Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPhotography | A trip that has a strong focus on encouraging people to capture photographs.Public Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.The Great North walk is a mammoth multi-day hike and at 250 km, it’s not for the faint-hearted. Created in 1988 to celebrate Australia’s bicentenary, the walk links Sydney with the Hunter Valley and Newcastle. It is a one-stop-shop for some of the best scenery New South Wales has to offer. To make it more convenient, we will walk in sections. Public transport is available for the first few sections. Subsequent sections will mostly require car transport. A Certificate of Completion will be awarded to walkers who attend all sections. Today we walk Section 1 : Macquarie Place to North Ryde. The first segment starts from Macquarie Place, corner of Bridge and Loftus Street. The enjoyable walk takes into history, seaview, grand houses, gardens, and churches. Kookaburras, lorikeets, boats, orchids, grand trees and plants were seen along the way. This walk involves a ferry ride. The second segment is a lovely bush track along the Lane Cove River. Cormarants, herons, brush turkey, lorikeets and other birds are expected to be seen. Wildflowers abound. Salt Marsh, sandstone caves, trees  and plants are all very lovely. Please include your mobile no when RSVP. Join our Sunday walks to meet the other leaders for The Great North Walk. Slippery sections.

Talk | A talk or slide show presentation.Filmmaker Gregory Miller began making the documentary Cultivating Murder soon after the murder of OE&H compliance officer, Glen Turner near Moree in 2014. The film follows the murder trial and conviction of Ian Turnbull, a major rural producer form Croppa Creek. It also reveals the large scale illegal land clearing that was taking place at the time, and questions whether the amount of land in NSW under cultivation is already too much. At the time of the court case the NSW Government set about changing the entire environmental legislation and introduced the new Bio Diversity Act, which is largely based on self assessment principals which are not beneficial for the environment and biodiversity in the state. The screening of the film will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. View

Canyon | A trip through a canyon (a gully surrounded by tall cliffs).Swim | A trip that involves swimmingSlow pace | A trip where the leader will set an easy pace.The justifiably famous Wollangambe Canyon is a delight especially as we float through its wonderfully sculptured narrow confines on our lilos admiring the spectacular scenery including a short detour up Crayfish Canyon. There is no abseils in this canyon but being able to swim is important and a lilo/portable raft is essential. Rock scrambling and deep water so lilo is necessary.

Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPhotography | A trip that has a strong focus on encouraging people to capture photographs.(NEW!!!) 11km walking track is near Wisemans Ferry and follows a steep mountain ridge through lush gullies, past clear running creeks in Dharug National Park. This rough track will really get your heart racing with several steep climbs along the way. 11km walking track is an exhilarating challenge for adventure seekers. This beautiful circuit walk goes through a range of dry and wet forest along the valley, and offers some great views. There are plenty of grass trees along the way to add to the scenery and the creek crossings are very picturesque. The side trip to a large Aboriginal engravings site alone is worth the entry price! At this time of the year, there is an abundance of wild flowers. Steep and slippery sections

The wilder untamed region of the Morton National Park is the Ettrema wilderness, an area not nearly as well trodden as the more familiar Buddawangs section and because of this wilder side you largely have the place to yourself. We will follow the supremely beautiful Ettrema Creek along its twisted route with plenty of time to swim in any number of the enticing pools along the way. On our second day we ascend Myall Creek which has an abundance of stunning cascades before a shortish scrub bash back to the Touga Road. Lots of rock hopping and rock scrambling on the last days climb up Myall Creek.
